I saw that someone asked if the iPod can get infected?? I didn't think that could be possible, it seems like such a basic little device. I don't think of it as a computer. But mine is not working at all.
Will i have to go find another one to buy? Apple does not even make it anymore, and I will have to buy one from Amazon or somewhere. I cannot do without this one...i wear it like a watch.
It is an iPod nano 6th gen. 32gb
It stopped working yesterday. It had a white screen I have never seen before that looked like this:
and BTW...that screen is ridiculous...i have never seen it before. It does not look like that when it is hooked up to iTunes normally and time to eject. and that white screen is also turned sideways from the normal orientation.
This iPod is a touch screen, but these weird screens (images here) do not respond to touch.
I had synched a few days ago (which did not work properly meaning it wiped away all my existing music and only added the new music files but that is probably just a setting).
I think the device got confused and thinks it is still synching to iTunes or something. But I don’t know…it’s just not working.
The computer recognizes the device when I plug it in.
I opened iTunes, plugged in, and it does not show up in iTunes. I tried to get it to recognize by holding down power button when plugging in with iTunes running, and nothing happened.
I then unplugged. Pressed both the power button and the top volume button at the same time. I saw the apple splash, then the following screen which I have also never seen before.
That IS the correct orientation, and that screen goes off after about 10 minutes, and here is what the screen says/shows (because the image is a bit blurry)…
A vertical line on the left with an asterisk at the top of the line and at the bottom a money symbol and another asterisk.
On the right, the words, numbers and symbols say this:
there is a horizontal line of dashes at the bottom and then underneath:

Really HELPFUL, Apple. I hope it's something simple and i just need to know how to reset but if anyone has suggestions...would really appreciate it. I will be gone this afternoon but will look back and see if anyone can tell me what to do or what you think.
Is this screen just some kind of code inside the device? ughhhh
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can't even...
